This is something that is very common in dogs.

Here are some helpful hints.

Allergic Dermatitis

A dog with allergies should be switched to an anti-inflammatory diet, which means a diet that is very low in grain content and without potatoes. Beneficial additions to the diet include omega-3 fatty acids in conjunction with coconut oil to decrease inflammation and yeast growth throughout the body. 

Helpful supplements for allergic dogs include quercetin together with bromelain and papain, diffused eucalyptus oil, and local honey.

Avoid unnecessary vaccines and veterinary drugs, and definitely don't allow a dog with allergies to be vaccinated during a flare-up.

Use foot soaks, body rinses and frequent baths to control build-up of allergens on your pet's coat and skin. Avoid shampoos with grains, including oatmeal shampoo.

Vacuum carpets and clean hard floors regularly; wash pet bedding often; use non-toxic cleaners around the house; and consider investing in an air purifier to remove allergens from your dog's indoor living space.
